Well, we are ripping the shirt out of THAT game today. Even "Leave It In...

Just when we were starting to think it was all fake...we get to learn about even more fake people and places from that charming book of absolute made up bunk: the Book of Momo. We also read a letter from a listener who took the time to write in on fancy stationary. And there's a "He Said What" about conversion therapy that's worthy of a trigger warning. So please skip that section or this entire episode if that'...

This week we're taking a break from the sex talks to discuss Shelly's former feelings of unworthiness. Yup, once again it's Shelly's Journal Journey - always a good time. We also answer a few listener questions, and we learn about a new humping term that's all the rage in Provo. Good times.
